Preparation work for Transpennine Route Upgrade
For your information and safety, Network Rail have advised of preparation for upgrading the Transpennine railway, undertaking essential work between Thorpe Willoughby and South Millford. The work will involve removing vegetation from 6.5 metres either side of the tracks to allow safe clearance of the gantries and wires prior to the electrification of the railway line. As well as removal of trees which are within striking distance of the railway should they fall. Some fencing along the route will also be replaced.
